1-chapter books

You may have noticed that the VerseWise Bible 4.3 and EOB 1.1 updates are now in the store.

Unfortunately it appears that 1-chapter books like Jude are not displaying correctly! I'll look into this and submit a fix soon.

Update 10/27:

One workaround is to rotate the device to landscape. The text will then appear correctly! You can then rotate back to portrait if you prefer.

Still trying to figure out why this is happening in the first place...

Update 11/2:

Fix for VerseWise Bible (4.3.1) is now available in App Store! EOB shouldn't be too far behind.

Update 11/5:

Fix for EOB (1.1.1) now in App Store!

While you work on fixing that, would you mind telling us how long it will take to have 2 Esdras and 4 Maccabees added as well to the Deuterocanonical list?

I'd also like to once again remind you about the proposal of a "Pseudepigrapha" app that would utilize the same layout as the current Bible apps, but instead of biblical/Deuterocanon books, they would be replaced with Pseudepigraphic literature such as 1 Enoch, Jubilees and the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs. Free to use translations such as those by R. H. Charles are easily found online and available to use.

An app such as this is not available in any form anywhere and would prove to be a good seller. People who do research on these documents could use a resource such as this, and your app has the best format for it.

I looked into including 2 Esdras and 4 Maccabees this time around but unfortunately it involved a little more work than I wanted to undertake right now, mainly complicated by the Backup/Restore functionality. I wanted to get the iPhone 5 update out as soon as possible. So it will have to wait until next time.

Regarding the "Pseudepigrapha", if I were to do this it would have to wait a while as I have a number of higher priority projects already in the queue. Sorry!

Too bad. Lots of people, even those who are not scholars, would jump for the chance to have easy access to those documents. After all, History Channel and National Geographic have both done many documentaries on them, creating a desire in the public to read them.

I guess what I'm saying is: make sure the other projects are indeed higher priorities. Because I'm pretty sure that a Pseudepigrapha app would sell well enough to earn back the time spent on it. ;)

Anyway, keep up the good work.

PS. It may be related to the issue with Jude, but searching on the bible apps is a tiny bit slower.
